TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – NORTH BAY TRAPPERS
The hosts of this year’s Dudley Hewitt Cup, the Trappers constructed a roster not only capable of making a run at the Central Region championship, but that won the franchise’s first NOJHL regular season title since 2008-09 and fifth since it moved from Sturgeon Falls in 2002. North Bay survived a two-horse race with the Soo Thunderbirds, finishing three points up on the defending league and regional champions, despite winning just two of the eight regular season meetings between the teams. The Trappers finished eight goals behind the Soo for the most goals in the league (223-215) but were the No. 1 defensive team, allowing 120 goals in 48 games. Goaltender Greg Dodds finished at or near the top of most of the NOJHL’s goaltending categories, including first in wins (28), goals-against average (2.25), save percentage (.928) and shutouts (three, tied for lead), and second in shots faced (1,173) and saves (1,089). Offensively, Brennen Dubchak led the way with 51 points (21 goals, 30 assists), joined in the top 20 of NOJHL scoring by Trevor Hunt (48 points), Samuel Blanchet (44), Brandon Janke (42) and Tait Seguin (41).
